Women's EURO stars to dominate Swedish skyline

Giant images of the stars of UEFA Women's EURO 2013 are to be displayed in all of the group stage venues as a means of further promoting next month's showpiece event.

The stars of UEFA Women's EURO 2013 are set to dominate the Swedish host cities thanks to huge promotional designs being unveiled in all six group stage venues.

At least two players from each of the 12 participating teams will be featured on giant magnetic boards to be displayed at hotels, shopping malls, airports and other prime locations. In Linkoping, where England will be based for their three Group C games, captain Casey Stoney will adorn the exterior of the Hotel Scandic City where her squad will be staying.

The highly visible Women's EURO designs aim to promote the 12 finalist sides and get their players well known by the local communities. The following players will become familiar faces in the host cities before, and during, next month's championship:
